How to Restore Blackberry Messages

By Jamie Lisse

If you have a Blackberry smartphone where you need to restore some messages, there may be some hope for you. If you have previously backed up the messages you can easily restore the messages to your Blackberry. If the messages were from a chat using Blackberry Messenger and you have the chat history enabled you can easily restore those messages as well. If you have deleted a message that was not backed up then you cannot restore the message.

Things You'll Need

  • Blackberry Desktop Manager
  • Blackberry Messenger
  • Blackberry USB computer cable

Step 1

Click on the Blackberry Messenger icon to view old chat messages. Select the contact who you were chatting with and press “Menu.” Click on “View History” to see the previous messages with that contact. The messages stay in the history until you delete the history.

Step 2

Connect your Blackberry to your computer with the Blackberry USB cable to prepare to restore backed up messages.

Step 3

Open the Blackberry Desktop Manager software on your computer. Double-click on the “Backup and Restore” icon on the screen.

Step 4
